Are capsules with Beef Gelatin Halaal?

Question:

Are capsules with Beef Gelatin Halaal? These are branded “Boots” from the UK.

Answer:

Beef gelatin MAY be halaal if the skin etc. used to make the gelatin is obtained from halal slaughtered animals. Usually this would be labeled as “halaal gelatin”. We are not aware if ‘Boots’ uses halal gelatin in their capsules.
